Nice - Lille

Farioli: "There's a good chance Hicham will be in the squad”

Francesco Farioli has given an update on his squad two days ahead of Lille, who kick off their L1 campaign this Friday at 21:00. "There's a good chance that Hicham will be in the squad. He trained a little this morning (Wednesday). We're assessing the situation and we'll see between now and tomorrow," explained the Aiglons coach, before mentioning another midfielder's return: "We hope to have Alexis Claude-Maurice for the Lorient game (on August 20 at 15:00)."

Antoine Mendy "is still out of action" after undergoing knee surgery in June.
